The Cleveland Cavaliers announced today that they have waived four members from their preseason roster.
Kadji and Taylor both played in seven preseason games for the Cavaliers. Kadji averaged five points and 1.7 rebounds in just over nine minutes of action per game. Taylor averaged 5.7 points, 1.3 rebounds, and 1.9 assists in his preseason stint.
Williams, who played in six of the preseason games, averaged 2.5 points and 2.2 rebounds in almost eight minutes a contest.
Diop saw minimal time in three games for Cleveland. This was the second time he has been a member of the Cavaliers, leaving in 2005.
These players will now be available to any other interested teams to claim off waivers.
Of the four, it would not be surprising to see Taylor be claimed or end up on an NBA roster at some point this season. At 6'5" and a filled-out frame, he has prototypical NBA size for a shooting. He has beautiful form on his jumper and can knock down the outside shot (was a 38% three-point shooter in college).
Taylor also has freakish athleticism, but has not been able to put it all together at the NBA level. The Cavaliers were willing to give him a shot in preseason, but he again did not impress.
There have been other players like this, who have struggled to find the right fit, so don't expect this to be the end for Taylor.
